Why we're unique

Steele County Clothesline is the ONLY organization in Southern Minnesota directly providing critically needed clothing, shoes, and outerwear to needy individuals, families, disaster survivors, displaced workers, migrant workers, and others free of charge.

Thanks to a small paid staff, dedicated volunteers, and donated goods, we are able to distribute these items plus sheets, towels, blankets, and dishes to individuals and families with incomes at or below 200% of the Federal poverty level.

The Steele County Clothesline distributes donated clothing only to the individuals and families who meet our income guidelines, and does not charge for the items we provide. In this way, we enable our customers to direct more of their limited resources toward transportation and other expenses that make it possible for them to look for work, attend classes, obtain medical and other treatment, and improve their circumstances.
